1-27-2011 UPDATE on the UPDATE, about the UPDATE, for the UPDATE! It seems Sega and HVS are playing the "delay fish" game, and announced today(yesterday technically) that the game has been delayed again, and Conduit 2 will now be released on April 19, 2011.
UPDATE for the Update on the Update! Conduit 2's release date has now been confirmed for March 22, 2011 and will retail for $49.99. Sega/HVS announced the release date change, but didn't state why it was changed.
Update on the Update! Conduit 2's release date has been confirmed for Tuesday, February 15, 2011. You can pre-order it now!
*Update: It was reported on September 2, that Conduit 2 has been delayed until "the first quarter of 2011", by Nintendojo.com.
If you click the image above, you will see that both Amazon.com and GameStop.com have Conduit 2 now with a release date of November 2, 2010.
I know many times companies like Game Stop and Amazon.com will use placeholder release dates, but this date does fall on a Tuesday, which is often the day new games are released.
The date, November 2, 2010, also goes along with the "Fall 2010" target release mentioned in Sega's press release, when they announced Conduit 2.
If November 2, 2010, is the release date, I think it's going to be very interesting seeing how Conduit 2 performs, if Treyarch/Activision release another Call of Duty Wii game this fall in November.
Call of Duty 3 was released on November 21, 2006.
Call of Duty: World at War was released on November 11, 2008.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex was released on November 10, 2009.
Do you think November 2, 2010, will end up being the release date for Conduit 2?
If so, and another Call of Duty game is released on the Wii this November as well, do you plan on buying both games, or just one?
If just one, which game do you plan on buying, Conduit 2 or the next Call of Duty?
As for myself, I do want to hear more details about Conduit 2, mainly on the multiplayer and hearing confirmation the spawn bug isn't present, that was present in The Conduit. If Treyarch is developing the next Call of Duty Wii game, I'm already leaning towards Call of Duty, because of Treyarch's past two Wii Call of Duty games.
I am assuming another Call of Duty game will be released on the Wii this, though one hasn't been officially announced yet.
If you're interested in any of the games mentioned, you can see some of their new and used prices on Amazon.com below:
I'm not a big fan of FPS games except for games like Duke Nukem 3D and Goldeneye/Perfect Dark so The Conduit has always had more appeal to me than a war shooter.ReplyDelete
I liked The Conduit quite a bit and it's now sitting as my second most played game on Wii, because both my brother and I enjoyed playing online. I'm looking forward to the sequel and I hope the online will be much improved.
On the other hand, I couldn't care less about Call of Duty. It doesn't matter if it turns out to be the better game, I'm not interested in the setting at all.
On topic, the date is quite interesting. Placeholder dates are usually 1, 15, 30, 31 so it's hard to judge. I'm sure we'll get a confirmation at least before E3.
Seems legit, Gamestop placeholders are always the 1st of the month, so this is very likely. Anyway, whether it is 11/2 or 11/16, it's still November and it is still a long way away.ReplyDelete
I would buy both, if Conduit fixes there online bugs, and Call of Duty finally adds Wii Speak. The co-op on Conduit 2 does give it a slight edge over Call of Duty if money it tight tho.ReplyDelete
Are you and your brother still playing The Conduit online any? If so, is it random matches, or with friends? I agree, the date interesting being that it falls on a Tuesday.
Yea, I think GameStop has the next Zelda Wii game with a placeholder of 11/01/10.
Yea, the lack of Wii Speak in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex was surprising, but it seemed like they were rushed to get it completed(and did a good job with it), I can understand it.
This next one though, I'm expecting it to have Wii Speak, and perhaps co-op. Call of Duty: World at War had co-op on the PS3 and Xbox360, but only the "girlfriend" mode on the Wii.
I wonder if E3 is when we'll find out more information on the next Call of Duty game?
Thanks for the thoughts!
The only FPS game I've enjoyed over the past 2 years is L4D1 and currently L4D2. That being said, on another topic, I still need to beat the first Zelda for the Wii. So many good games are coming out for the PC this year though so I don't think beating Zelda will be possible.ReplyDelete
I think this is a mistake. If they clean it up and produce a better product and advertise it, Conduit 2 should sell nicely especially given the price tag has to be half as much as the first. However, Treyarch has the COD name and it's experience going for it, so it has the edge. Probably I will wait and see how the two are reviewed in comparison.ReplyDelete
The first Condiut was reviewed OK but was given favorable reviews since there was no other FPS within 6 months of it. With C2 and CODTrey going head to head, there will be a much bigger comparison this time around.

You really should try out a FPS on the Wii and see what you think of the control setup.
Yea, I think that if COD doesn't include Wii Speak, and C2 does, that could be a big deciding factor for people.
Then again, I had Wii Speak my entire time I played The Conduit online, and I think I used it maybe in five matches.
It didn't seem like a lot of people had Wii Speak, or if they did, they weren't using it.
Thanks for the comments!
Hope it comes out for Wii 2...ReplyDelete
If you don't know what Wii 2 is/will be, check out this article I wrote in a new blog... Very informative I believe. This is not spam, just sharing some info that's too much to post in a comment...
Good write-up on it. I don't know if you saw my older post, where I was "analyzing" an IGN interview with HVS about The Grinder, and I was thinking perhaps it was hinting at a Wii HD.
Thanks for the comment!
Yeah I can't wait for the Conduit 2 and all, but on the first one, people barely ever had Wii Speak/Used it. What I am REALLY worried about is if people will use cheats online. Whenever they do in Conduit 1, it almost always ruins the matches. It dosen't happen often, but I still always check after an amount of time if someone has no deaths. But I still love playing online in Conduit 1.ReplyDelete
Overall, whether people will be able to cheat online or not, when the Conduit 2 comes out, it will be a quick buy for me.
